action to send midi data to selected track #386
From lewis.sc...@gmail.com on September 24, 2011 04:34:10
i have been dying for actions that could send MIDI notes or midi CC messages into a selected track.
by sending to a track that contains a hardware midi output or a vst, you could build macros that not only control Reaper but also midi controlled equipment...setting up conditions and optimizing workflow. this type of integration would be extremely powerful.
if this is inclear, please allow me to clarify or give some examples of use...
instead of having thousands of midi actions (all note ons, note offs, cc messages and values) i'm picturing a reaconsole type of scenario where the user must input what messages he would like sent and call them accordingly...

Sysex for instance. I've seen this mentioned a few times.
Conceptually picture a grid.

hey guys, this is doable but a making custom JS effects would be straight forward (and there sould be some VST in the wild that propose such features.. for ex: ReaControlMIDI can send custom SysEx messages - on playback start though)

ok, I added the flowing stuff in r617 (will be available in the next SWS version):
Added media file slot actions:
there's no GUI for media file slots but you can define them just by running the "Play media file in selected tracks" action: a file browser is displayed if no file is defined for this slot.
Media file slots are saved in the S&M.ini file in the section [MediaFiles].
I think this reply this reply to this FR: you can define your own .mid file slots. It is a bit more opened as it will also work with audio files (wav, wavpack, etc..)

Errr.. how do you STOP the file playing guys? ;)
I just added a pink noise sample to slot 1 for quick k-metering setting up but was hoping there would be a "stop" action too! ;) lol
Was going to create a "cycle action" for it.

A GUI will be soon available for medial file slots (i.e. new item "Media files" in the top right dropdown box of the Resources view)
